It would be awesome to finally be able to watch these races without having to look them up on the web. Now if only Dorna would allow Moto GP to be televised to help promote the sport. Sadly, I think there too greedy to do so.

Great news. I've really been shafted this year by SPEEDTV. They suck, other than MotoGP. I don't get BeIN Sport so I miss WSBK.

You don't need beIN, you can still watch the simulcast streamed live online

Unfortunately, it's not the main CBS network...

It's the CBS Sports Spectacular channel, which may or may not be buried somewhere deep in your channel listings, if it's available to you at all.

Still, better than nothing.

CBS Sports Network is available across the country through local cable, video and telco providers and via satellite on DirecTV Channel 613 and Dish Network Channel 158. For more information, and to access the CBS Sports Network channel finder, go to HOME | CBS Sports Network

CBSSN is on a premium package (on DirectTV at least). So on top of paying extra for the bullshit called Speed, now I will have to pay even more for AMA on CBS? No thanks. BeIN would be interesting but that's even more still.

CRAP!!! I just saw this thread again, which reminded me to check to see if I get channel 94. NOPE! No CBS sports network and no BeIN sport network. I am now back to a strict diet of only MotoGP.

No. If you have SPEED, you should have CBS Sports. It's channel 613 on Directv. I've had it as long as I can remember. SPEED and CBSN are both on the same package (I believe Total choice).

Didn't know CBS Sports was on same package as Speed. We have Total Choice Plus and pay $12 extra for Sports Package. Thought CBS Sports was part of that. NBC Sports is 220 on DirecTV which I guess would be main tier. They have all Indy car and F1 for those who care. Wonder why CBS Sports isn't there? Good news about the AMA racing there. Guess I won't be getting any work done on Saturday afternoons now.

I've had total choice for something like 10 years and CBS Sports has never been available, just as it shows today.

Check DirectTV's website, it's available on the next more expensive package.

I have Total choice plus (but NOT the sports package), and I get CBSSN.

I guess that's why I get it, I've had Total choice plus since 1997 (or it's equivalent). :)
